From the Publisher
Annotation Manny Pacquiao, at 32, has already accomplished something no one else in boxing has ever achieved: ten world titles in eight different weight divisions. As a boxing icon, he inhabits the rarified atmosphere of past giants such as Joe Louis, Sugar Ray Robinson, and Roberto Duran (no one shares the air that Muhammed Ali breathes). By no means the only fighter to have gone from poverty to prominence, the Pacman stands out because he has continually assumed responsibilities far beyond his age, from helping to support his family in the Philippines by working even as a young child to serving as a role model through his work ethic and charitable activities. His story is both heartfelt and inspiring.
Editors Note With his shellacking of Antonio Margarito in November 2010, Manny “PacMan” Pacquiao became the only boxer ever to win eight world championships in eight different weight classes. Proclaimed the “fighter of the decade” by ESPN and recently elected Congressman in the Philippines, he is an inspiration to his countrymen. But to many, he remains an enigma. In PacMan—named one of the best sports books of 2010 by the Guardian—Gary Andrew Poole pulls back the curtain in an “amazing tale of how a reed-thin Filipino, who left his home in the poorest pocket of the Philippines (“The City of Dust”) at the age of 15…became one of the most recognizable names and faces in the world.”—Dallas Morning News
